Staying married is one of the greatest challenges that couples will ever undertake. Marvin McMickle has provided a seven-step resource for premarital counseling that couples can use with or without the involvement of a clergy member or counselor. Developed over a thirty-year career in pastoral ministry, this book is based upon the premise that a healthy marriage is the result of what happens before a couple says, "I do." By focusing on seven concepts--
• faith• friendship• frankness• forgiveness• fidelity• finance• family
--couples will discover the tools they need to build a strong and lasting marriage in the twenty-first century. This book is an invaluable resource for both couples and premarital counselors. Questions are provided at the end of each chapter for serious reflection.
